  • Grand Prix Culturel Migros 2019
    Musée d’art et d’histoire Neuchâtel

    Début 2022

    Grand Prix Culturel Migros 2019

    Annelore Schneider et Claude Piguet, du collectif_fact, ont convaincu les membres du jury avec leur projet «Marianne». Il s’agit d’une vidéo 360° filmée dans le Musée d’art et d’histoire de Neuchâtel. Le but est d’y munir les visiteurs d’un écran portable et d’écouteurs, et de les faire guider par une voix. Celle-ci représente l’automate de «la Musicienne», l’un des trois automates Jaquet-Droz exposés au musée.

    La Société coopérative Migros Neuchâtel-Fribourg remet chaque année depuis 2005 un Grand Prix Culturel à un candidat soigneusement sélectionné par un jury de professionnels. Tous les ans, le choix s’effectue au sein d’une discipline artistique différente (arts plastiques, arts de la scène, arts visuels, littérature et musique).

    Un regard critique sur les machines
    Marianne s’interrogera sur son statut d’androïde et la relation qu’elle entretient avec les humains. «Les visiteurs seront ainsi entraînés dans une visite particulière du musée, mélangeant la réalité de ce qu’ils voient et ce que nous filmerons». Cette expérience à travers deux réalités portera un regard critique sur l’implication des machines sur notre perception et notre façon de ressentir ce qui nous entoure. La simultanéité de ces deux mêmes espaces rendra ce parcours intrigant et saisissant. Le visiteur deviendra alors détective, flâneur et participant de l’oeuvre.

  • Going Away.tv’s
    First season
    Launch 01.11.2019

    Going Away.tv’s
    First season
    A retreat for weary travellers. A destination for new discoveries.

    Launch 01.11.2019
    To the 15th of mars 2020

    ‘Going Away.tv’ is an online platform hosting live streamed artists’ moving image 24/7, combining work from a variety of localities and backgrounds. At once embracing and critiquing the democratic nature of streaming platforms such as ‘Twitch’ and ‘Youtube Live’, ‘Going Away.tv’ will continuously present the work of multiple artists working in moving image and broadcasting, randomised but presented sequentially twenty four hours a day. On returning visits to ‘Going Away’, you may not see the same work twice.

    Existing as a retreat for weary travellers, a destination for new discoveries, the passive nature of viewing is both rewarded and yet indirectly punished. Working with the idea of a dystopian TV station, unable to cope with the new demands of this form of content delivery, the stream becomes distorted and interrupted as viewer numbers grow, gradually turning itself into a community lead abstraction.

    Engaging with the ideas of solitary versus collective viewing experiences, ‘Going Away.tv’ is a chance for participants to find inspiration in this abstraction while making conscious choices of when and how to view the pre selected programming. As the station’s popularity turns its content into a soup of colour and shape, will you embrace the destruction or search for solitude in its original form.

  • A Chance for the Unpredictable
    Lianzhou Foto 15th Festival
    Exhibition 30.10.2019 – 03.01.2020
    Guangdong, China

    LIANZHOU FOTO FESTIVAL 2019
    15th edition
    A Chance for the Unpredictable

    Curated: Peter Pfrunder

    November 30, 2019 – January, 3 2019
    Opening Ceremony : November 29, 2019

    This year the Swiss Foundation for Photography Director Peter Pfrunder was invited to collaborate to Lianzhou Foto’s fifteenth edition. To celebrate this anniversary edition, the theme chosen by our guest curator is an hommage to photography, its practice and malpractice. The local and international artists to be featured in the theme exhibition exploring the uncontrollable aspects and the unpredictable elements that leave their traces on the photographic image.

    ‘A Chance for the Unpredictable’ is a fascinating topic with many options for subtle comments on the current state of our world – it is implicitly political by focusing on a genuinely photographic subject. And we need it more than ever as an antidote to rationality, efficiency and predictability.

    Artists to be featured in the theme exhibition are among others : Huang Huang (China), Liu Ke (China), Lukas Felzmann (Swiss), Hayahisa Tomiyasu (Japan), Anna Niskanen (Finland), Collectif Fact (UK), Delio Jasse (Angola), Kurt Caviezel (Swiss), Jenny Rova (Sweden), Clément Lambelet (Swiss), Jun Ahn (Korea), Seba Kurtis (Argentina), Clare Strand (UK), Jules Spinatsch (Swiss), Ester Vonplon (Swiss)
